Trials of Mana exceeds sales expectations, gives hope for a Chrono Trigger remake
Despite launching in the same month as Final Fantasy 7 Remake with the real risk of being overshadowed, Trials of Mana still managed to sell very well on all platforms. The latest financial earnings from Square Enix explicitly credits both Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Trials of Mana for the YoY rise in both sales and profits in the company's HD Game segment.
As noted in the report which can be seen below, Trials of Mana sales have been so strong that they "have significantly surpassed" initial expectations. The high numbers may not be fueled entirely by nostalgia, however, as the report also mentions increased demand in digital downloads during that same time period due to COVID-19.
With both Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Trials of Mana doing so well, it wouldn't be out of the question for Square Enix to open its vault of classic 16-bit or 32-bit games for more potential remakes. Chrono Trigger, for example, launched around the same time as the original Trials of Mana for SNES and a remake could theoretically run on the same UE4 engine that powers the Trials of Mana remake.
In the short term, however, Square Enix will be betting on Marvel's Avengers and Outriders to keep it afloat meaning we'll have to wait a bit longer before any potential remake announcements.
